Subject: The Story Behind the Title
Another Azalea film. Having lived in Texas, where these movies were made, I know that Azaleas are planted to drive away cockroachs. Shows that the Schlockmeister had a sense of irony, eh?
Subject: 922 yrs into the future?
Subject: If you like 60's cult films you must see this!
I cannot recommend this film enough.
Subject: Hypnotic, Numbing
"After the success of their earlier motion picture Master of the World (1961), American International Pictures had planned to make another film based on a Jules Verne story, In the Year 2889, however the project was later shelved. A few years later, when Larry Buchanan was given the script of AIP's earlier film The Day the World Ended (1955) to remake, a new title was needed. Since AIP had already registered the In the Year 2889 title, it was tacked onto the Buchanan film."
And THAT is where the crazy, ill-fitting, seemingly nonsensical title came from. For me, it only adds to the film's aura of strange, dreary otherworldliness.
Subject: Defies credibility
